ITEM 1.01  ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

1.     
2007 Performance Incentive Plan

As part of its overall compensation program, Boston Scientific Corporation (the "Company") provides an annual cash incentive opportunity for salaried personnel, including executive officers, under its Performance Incentive Plan. Cash incentives are generally based upon the level of achievement of quarterly Company, divisional and individual objectives. Effective January 1, 2007, the Executive Compensation and Human Resources Committee of the Board of Directors (the "Compensation Committee") adopted the Company's 2007 Performance Incentive Plan. The 2007 Performance Incentive Plan continues to measure corporate performance on a quarterly basis against sales, profitability and quality goals but now also measures corporate performance based on achievement of full year results against the annual plan. Individual achievement for an executive officer is measured by the performance of the strategic functions for which each executive officer is responsible. A copy of the Company's 2007 Performance Incentive Plan dated January 1, 2007 is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.


2.    
401(k) Retirement Savings Plan

Effective January 1, 2007, the Compensation Committee amended the Company’s 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan to add a new employee after-tax contribution (Roth) feature and an automatic enrollment feature for new employees.


3.    
2006 Global Employee Stock Ownership Plan

Effective January 1, 2007 the Compensation Committee amended the Company’s U.S. and International 2006 Global Employee Stock Ownership Plan to reduce from 15% to 10% the employee discount for purchasing the Company’s stock through the program.
